Ben,

Here is the link to Peninsular Engines. They have been great to work with. I will be stopping by their shop next month on my trip through Michigan.

On the MC issue, I disagree. Yes, disks do consume fluid, but if you check it frequently, it shouldn't be an issue. I would also be looking for a master cylinder with a larger piston, since the rear disks would need more fluid to actuate them. I hear the 1 ton MC is just a tad larger, maybe 1/16" in bore bigger. Not sure that would make much difference.

I've often thought of the dually conversion for my Sub, but I just couldn't justify spending $3,000 on doing it. It sure looks cool though. I can keep thinking about the increased tire costs, lost gas mileage, etc. I have a neighbor with a new Ford F-350 crew cab dually. I was envious, until he told me that he only gets 10 mpg...

Jake
